I made some Margarita Lime Grilled Shrimp Last weekend while camping and I thought I would share the recipe with everyone.  They were good but could have used some kind of additional dipping sauce for flavor.   I am such a bad blogger lately that I didn’t get any pictures of the marinade or making them.  Here is  a shot of them with some beef and chicken skewers.

Prep Time: 12 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 2 tablespoons triple Sec
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice


Combine all ingredients, except shrimp, in a medium mixing bowl. Add shrimp, cover and let marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.Remove shrimp and discard marinade. Thread shrimp onto skewers and grill for 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
